American Vernacular Music Manuscripts, ca. 1730-1910

This is a collaborative project between the Center for Popular Music and the American Antiquarian Society to inventory, catalog, digitize, and provide web-based public access to their extensive music manuscripts collections. It concerns manuscripts inscribed before 1910 that are mainly American in provenance, with contents that are preponderantly vernacular in style. This collection has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor. For additional descriptive information about each manuscript, visit the official AVMM website: American Vernacular Music Manuscripts, ca. 1730-1910: Digital Collections from the American Antiquarian Society and the Center for Popular Music
